The Association of Freeholders
The function of The Association of Freeholders (TAF) is to protect and promote the interests of its members and to give confidence to all parties who transact with them. Our members abide by a strict code of conduct; they are typically landlords and funds who own several thousands of ground rents across England and Wales. Our associate members include management companies, solicitors, agents, surveyors and other organisations that play an important role in the industry.
